Passenger aviation has revolutionized the transport of people. Nowadays it is very popular, relatively cheap and allows for quite fast movement, which further facilitates adaptation to a modern, fast lifestyle. The alternative means of transport that can lead to another revolution are fast magnetic railways. Recently I had the opportunity to take a train by train and see how this trip could look like in practice. Maglev trains (short for “magnetic levitation”) do not benefit from the traditional track. They have been replaced by a system of electromagnets over which the machines are floating all the time without contact with their surface. There are two magnetic rail systems in the world, developed by engineers in Germany (EMS – Lift by Repulsion) and Japan (EDS). The first uses traditional electromagnets, while the other electromagnetics are made of superconductors.
